Freedom 44 Emergency Tiller and Anchor Chain Locker Drainage

Post by rbrown739 »

Looking for some information on two topics; Emergency Tiller, and Anchor Chain Locker:
Emergency Tiller
1. Where and how do you stow your emergency tiller?
2. What does your emergency tiller look like? Mine is roughly 5 ft long with a welded on perpendicular tube at one end about
2.5 ft long

Anchor Chain Locker
1. How do you drain or remove water that gets into the chain locker?
2. What is underneath the chain locker floor?

Thanks for any help or pictures.

I bungie cord my tiller to the mizzen mast down below. That way it is easily accessible and out of the way. Not sure how a 44 is set up. But down below on my boat the mizzen is in the galley and I bungie anything 6 feet (2x fishing poles and a tiller) And some what skinny.

35' Pedrick here.

Our chain locker has two drains, water would be able to flow on either tack at sail. There are obvious holes that are tubed to forward hole ports around the water line. Assume you'd have same?

We store our emergency tiller in deep storage lazarette behind wheel. Size isn't as robust as yours and our tiller is more of a two-piece pipe structure.
